I'm new to the tudiabetes family. I'm a T2 and have been managing with Byetta and diet and excercise. Lately my blood sugars have been up and down with extreme levels and I'm thinking of asking my Endo about a pump. I love to work out, hike, and camp with my son's Boy Scout troop. The hypos have made all of that very difficult and I hate being on a schedule. I lost 35 lbs last year and I have gained 5 of that back. My A1C went from 5.5 in July to 6.3 in November. With the highs and lows that… Continue

Donna -
Pete hit it right on the head with the "The dex is type blind" comment, as he most often is. And also, he is right on with the caution about accuracy, I encourage you to read as many threads as possible from the past to get used to how to do things on the dex, it is great that you are already in touch with a rep, but sometimes they are a bit slighted, of course. I had the hardest time getting used to it, and the alarms going off in the midle of the night, etc. But I did get used to it and learned some of the 'tircks' necessary to maintain some degree of accuracy, and you need to learn to get alon without using Tylenol! (small sacrifice, yes, but a sacrifice just the same). PS: Welcome to TU, and please visti my site and post a comment at http://www.supportersofsurvivors.com. NOthing for sale there, I promise! Just more people looking to help people!

Welcome to TuD, Donna. It's good to have you here. This is a wonderful community of people with a great deal of knowledge and common sense approaches to your management. I've learned so much since coming on board. My brother lived in outside of Charleston until his untimely passing from lung cancer. It is beautiful country. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Be well!
